Many of us are exhausted and would love to find ways to save time and energy. Although it doesn’t seem like it would be true, one of the ways we truly can save time and energy is to stop addressing negative behavior and big emotions as they’re happening.

In this episode, you will hear why, although it is possible to experience positive long-term results using in-the-moment strategies, you will save so much precious time and energy by using proactive strategies instead. I’ll also dissect a specific scenario to demonstrate the difference between in-the-moment and proactive strategies so you can see for yourself!
